The United States Mint will begin sales of the Acadia National Park Quarter numismatic bags and rolls starting today June 11, 2012 at 12:00 Noon ET. This will be the thirteenth release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program.
The reverse design of the coin features a view of the Bass Harbor Head Light House and Acadia’s coastline. This image incorporates many of the representative elements of the park, including the coastline, light house, pine trees, and the ocean. This is the design that had been recommended by both the CFA and CCAC.
The US Mint will offer 100-coin bags of circulating quality Acadia National Park Quarters from either the Philadelphia or Denver Mint. The canvas bags are sewn shut and include an indication of the year, design, state abbreviation, mint mark, and face value. Each bag is priced at $34.95.
Two roll sets containing one 40-coin roll from the Philadelphia and Denver Mint will also be available. The rolls feature special numismatic wrapping that includes the design, state abbreviation, mint mark, and face value. Each two roll set is priced at $32.95.
The Acadia National Park Quarter bags and rolls are expected to remain available for sale for approximately one year from the release date. At an unannounced future date, bags and rolls of circulating quality Acadia Quarters with the “S” mint mark are also expected to be released.
To coincide with today’s release, it is expected that sales of the eighth release of the America the Beautiful Quarters Program featuring Olympic National Park will conclude. The US Mint has been timing the conclusion of sales with the start of sales for the coin one year ahead in the release schedule.
